Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most unpredictable health conditions. However, it is not uncommon to find out that a brain injury has caused lasting, irreversible damage. Whether someone’s brain injuries are permanent largely depends on the type and severity of the injuries, and the symptoms they experience can vary.
Brain injuries can require extensive medical care and lead to a number of other financial hardships, especially if physical therapy and in-home assistance are necessary. If another person’s actions led to your or your loved one’s brain injury, you could qualify to collect compensation.
Possible Compensation for Permanent Brain Injuries
There are many costs to consider when it comes to permanent brain injuries—the physical cost of chronic pain and the emotional cost of depression and cognitive difficulties, for example. There is also a steep financial cost related to these injuries.
While a personal injury claim or lawsuit cannot undo the damage of a traumatic brain injury, it could reduce the strain from these costs. If someone else was responsible for the injuries that led to permanent brain damage, some of the damages the victim could recover include:
- Medical expenses: Treating a traumatic brain injury can be costly, especially when that treatment is necessary for the rest of your life. Monetary damages could be available not only for medical treatment but also for the cost of therapy.
- Lost wages: Permanent traumatic brain injuries can prevent the injured person from working again. Compensation could be available to offset this loss of income.
- Disability: The disabilities that can come with a brain injury often require long-term care. Monetary benefits could be available to cover these expenses.
